And then there were none.

The Marlins traded the last of their three outfielders, dealing Christian Yelich to the Milwaukee Brewers for four prospects, including outfielder Lewis Brinson, who is ranked as the No. 13 overall prospect by Baseball America.

The Marlins, who had already traded Giancarlo Stanton and Marcell Ozuna in December, dealt the last of the trio on Thursday.

In addition to Brinson, a former first-round draft pick from Coral Springs, the Marlins also received infielder Isan Diaz, outfielder Monte Harrison and right-handed pitcher Jordan Yamamoto.

Yelich, who had asked to be traded after watching both Stanton and Ozuna be dealt away, had five years remaining on his contract with the Marlins.
